Invest in the proper thread repair kits and seek out quality weld repair work if it becomes necessary. The speedometer fitting is located right where the linkage is. First was to revamp the T10 to handle more power. I grew up loving stick cars, as did Brian, and there is nothing cooler than a hot rod with three pedals. I guess the money was worth the bell housing and the case is clean, oil is clear, rotates real nice for first and second, just hoping to get an answer on why this would be done.
Workflow Process Most repair manuals approach disassembly and assembly procedures as the reverse of each other but this is not necessarily accurate. Take note that the arms are bent and the position of the rods. Sometimes you need to make a quick repair because time is a factor. New combs are harder and much better than the older ones. On the right is an aftermarket gear made in Taiwan.
Countergear endplay should be no more than 0. And at that time I make sure which exact parts I need, so I order the right ones. Using input from myself and several other volume rebuilders, he designed the Muncie Supercase. It cuts a nice slot in the bushing when you hit it with a hammer. Be sure to pay attention to the position of the countershaft.
A great way to restore and upgrade worn-out pre-1966 cases is to just bore them out to fit the later shafts and upgrade the gearset. Sometimes you can pry on this and remove the bearing. Letting air into the system allows oil to dump out of the unsealed front portion faster. The clutch fork pivot ball and release bearing length all play an important part in aiding in a good release. Small parts include needle bearings, snap rings, thrust washers, needle spacers, front nut, oil slinger, reverse detent spring, reverse detent ball, strut keys, and strut key springs. I had pretty good luck with Paul Cangialosi's video series and web site.
The stick itself moves in an arc. Therefore, if you wiggle the input shaft you will see that the output moves as well. The yellow line indicates the path and the blue arrow marks the direction of movement. The needle bearings changed from. You place the gear in the transmission with this shaft and then use the good shaft to push out the dummy shaft.

It stopped against the first and second synchronizer assembly, thereby eliminating the need for the assembly to have a retaining snap ring. I get that his video series is about selling parts and services. As a result, leaks and vibrations often develop. Therefore, the Muncie patent is basically a design for the layout of a 4-speed transmission. The rectangular drive portion of the shifter shaft was also increased in length from. The cases have a distinctive similar size, shape, and cover-bolt pattern.
They fix it if there is a complaint but do not order a recall. BorgWarner sold the T10 to Doug Nash in the early 1980s, which then sold it to Richmond Gear. The 1-2 rod goes behind its arm and the 3-4 rod is in front of its arm. Step 9: Separate Tail from Main Case Use a flathead screwdriver to pry near the extension alignment dowel and to break the seal. The tips of the shift forks engage the slots in the comb. Be careful not to lose the ball and spring. The gland nut is on the front side of the input; it is a left-handthread tapered nut that locks the front main bearing to the input shaft.
The reduction in the angle with the M22 is quite substantial. This is something that you cannot do with the dummy shaft method. General Motors optioned cars with either the M20 or M21 ratios based on engine types and axle ratios. The first-speed gear rode directly on the mainshaft. Be careful because you can crack early tailhousings in the area because the castings are thin.
Clutch Issues Problems with the clutch can easily affect how your transmission shifts and feels. The sidecovers of some 1970 units had the heavier 20-pound detent spring but by 1971 all the covers had these springs. Most shifters had a tin dust shield that always got lost. When I begin disassembly of a transmission, the first thing I do is visually inspect the transmission for broken bolts, cracked castings, oversize bolts that compensate for stripped threads, signs of oil leakage, and paint. Hopefully, the transmission you rebuild will not be in such poor condition. You have to judge whether or not to make a repair or do a full rebuild. You can use a little thread locker on the threads.
